Non-Traditional Winter Greetings Holiday Card, Copics, Distress Inks


Hello friends! Meg here, with a non-traditional colored holiday card!

I started this card by distress ink-blending the background. I used Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean distress inks and a Ranger ink blending tool. I added to the background some Moonstone (clear) glimmer texture paste by Nuvo - Tonic Studios. I applied it through a falling snow stencil by MFT stamps. I added two small strips of silver and black cardstock to the left side of the panel, once the texture paste dried. 

Once I liked the way my background looked, I printed the adorable birdie winter digital stamp from my laser printer. I began coloring the smallest details first - the lights and Christmas ornaments. I colored these using my Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens and Kaisercraft gel pens. I then colored the cutest digi bird with my copic markers. My intent was to match the bird with the ink-blended background. I used the blue-green family for most of the bird; BG05, BG07 and BG09. I coated the white part of the eyes with B000. I colored the white part of the winter hat with CO, C1 and C3. I used the purple Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen to add polka dots to the hat and scarf.


I then colored some white scrap paper with the Wilted Violet distress ink. I wanted the sentiment strip to match the background perfectly. The sentiment is from a Stampendous snowman clear stamp set and reads 'winter greetings.' I heat embossed the sentiment with white, Hero Arts embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my non-tradition holiday card! I wish everyone a happy, blessed, healthy and safe holiday season! Thank you for stopping by!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
